whole point of the sport is evening racing, go to track enjoy the craic, the food, the alcohol etc

yes daytime racing has its place but friday and saturday nights being sacked off for midweek mornings is just utter madness

I was workin down south in kennels for the last 5 months. Back home to edinburgh last week. Up town to nank on saturday to get some readies. On that day xmas shoppers remembrance parades and 80 odd thousand heading to murrayfield for rugby. Wondered why u could hardly walk. Opposite balmoral hotel princes street. 20 anti,s spouting **** had literally hundreds of people queing up to sign petitions to get dog racing banned. Stood for 15 minutes hundreds people signing. Couldn,t believe wot i was watching. On borrowed time asit is. Might come sooner than we think.

agree ph

best advice I can give anyone who is working in the industry or earns from punting dogs, make sure you have other things on the go other than dogs if you aren't in a position where you don't rely on the money it gives you or you're too old and its too late to worry about how it will affect you

Thats the problem wonders. Think the firms aregetting to the end of the line at limiting the shrewd money as most of lads are betfair only now. I think firms are worried about the fruit machines. If they get limited many shops will close. No 1 in shops north of border. Was in shop monday. 6 n a half hour stretch. Magic sign shop n a bird sat for 6 hrs putting money in machine. I kid u not.

correct mate lot of difference between making it pay ie showing any kind of profit to actually making a living..

this last year been my best ever in truth hit couple good accas, but the golden time in general was pre recession loose money absolutely everywhere, could kid the shops along as a small looking punter and go right under the radar never really questioned, certain few billy big bowlarks types about then most skint now no doubt and they had an army of sheep all wanting on same dog any price blah blah...if you were clever enough to come up with something better than them in a race xmas

I'm not opposed to less opens in principle though
there are too many now & it has diluted the value of what we class as an open imo

think we will see a major track go under next year its become survival of the fittest and that's it and notmany are in good shape once all this short term money that's been banded about runs out... If ATR tracks are SP only what really is the point of being an owner?

your dog wont just be used by the track it will abused !!!

If i were coral/ladbrokes i wouldn't pay ATR for the rights to show the other tracks bowlarks to them, just show own tracks dont take a bet anyway and put some cartoons on

when i was 15/16 years old a crowd of us used to go down the dogs bet 20p etc on the tote where mates mum worked, nobody went skint or developed gambling problems we knew all the best dogs brilliant times. Bunk off school get the coach from track on the intertrack days follow all our dogs, these things just cant happen now.

Times have obviously changed but there is always a solution and the governing body could have evolved with it and still made the sport appealing, rather than just milk whats left for themselves and nobody can argue that's exactly what they have done

'gravy train' times have changed blah blah whimper on a solemn tone... = pathetic losers
Report wondersobright November 16, 2017 11:15 PM GMT
present is pretty bleak, future is flat out undeniably bleak

if the FOBTs are hit hard, I can pretty much guarantee you that taking bets on dogs (and horses etc) will not become priority
it will be a huge push of all the other things that has escaped the stake restrictions, things the firms know they always end up winning on & for no effort

so that's the cartoon racing, the scratch cards, the 49s etc
the leeches will make damn sure all that sh1te is pushed hard
